The Silver Lining Transcribed by Collin Burgemeestre ([email protected]) This song is from the early, early days and later became 11 o'clock tick tock. I transcribed it from a bootleg. 11 o'clock tick tock was always one of my favorites so hearing and transcribing this different version was great! The lyrics were more difficult than the music so I'm not sure about them. The beginning is missing and starts just before the singing starts. I assume the beginning is like 11 o'clock tick tock. It is therefore handy to keep the 11 o'clock tick tock transcribtion alongside. I did an used parts of the 11 o' clock transcription. As always with U2, tune down one semitone. The intro is probably like 11 o'clock so look down below. The main riff is also the same. Intro (open string is optional)- Palm mute........................... harmonics....

Down below is Richard Zangoli's excellent transcription of 11 o'clock tick tock for comparison. 11 O'clock Tick Tock by U2 Transcribed by Richard Zangoli.([email protected]) This is a transcription of the live version of this song from the Under a Blood Red Sky CD. It may not be 100% but I think it's there or there abouts. Tune down 1/2 a step. Intro (open string is optional)- Palm mute........................... harmonics....
